Eyrise liquid crystal glass is to provide solar shading for Campus Germany at Expo 2020 in Dubai, which will take place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.

The dynamic glass specialist has been appointed a premium partner by the German Pavilion Expo 2020 Dubai Consortium which comprises facts and fiction GmbH and NUSSLI Adunic AG and is responsible for the pavilion’s design, planning and implementation.  

Expo 2020 Dubai, which was postponed for a year due to the global pandemic, will showcase scientific, technological, economic and social progress from over 190 countries, each with a national pavilion.  

Designed by Berlin-based architects LAVA, Campus Germany’s focus is on sustainability to align with the event’s central theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. Situated in the Expo’s ‘Sustainability’ district, the pavilion is built around these principles and features an interactive exhibition on creative sustainable solutions alongside new innovations.

“The German pavilion puts an important spotlight on one of the key issues of our time,” said Céline Glipa, CEO at Eyrise B.V.. “Our instant solar shading glass contributes to this focus on sustainability by creating a comfortable environment for visitors to the exhibition while supporting the building’s energy efficiency ambitions.” 

A total of 61 panels of Eyrise liquid crystal glazing have been installed at Campus Germany, comprising 28 fixed glass panels, four standard doors and 29 folding doors. Powered by proprietary Licrivision technology, the dynamic glass can be tinted to provide instant solar shading without compromising on natural daylight, helping to reduce energy consumption. 

World Expos have been held every five years since the inaugural Great Exhibition in London, in 1851. Expo 2020 Dubai is the first to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) region.
